Morrisey or Less a Cure


Today’s track and the next two to follow come from the same Capp Street Project session as the 1-25-10 post’s musical offering. What we’ve got here is a live improve by Scot on vocals.

We were all heavily into ‘The Smiths’ at the time and Morrisey’s “Viva Hate” is one of my lifetime most played albums. Scot really liked “The Cure” too. He referred to them as a larger genre—‘the whinney Englishmen groups’. There were many of them at the time, but ‘The Smiths’ (and even ‘The Cure’) were not whinning—they were wailing the mourner’s moan, for all of us.
